2020 Tokyo Olympics: Betting Options for July 30th Events

Olympic Women’s Basketball Tournament Betting Preview

USA vs Japan

  • When: Friday, July 30th
  • Time: 12:40 a.m. ET

The USA national team got off to a strong start with (81-72) victory against Nigeria and will now look to make it two in a row as they face the host nation of Japan. The hosts enter this match off a very impressive showing against France, who they beat 74-70, which extended their win streak to six in a row.

During that stretch, the Japanese won against Portugal (69-47, 68-43, 67-58), Belgium (84-76), and Puerto Rico (94-59). Japan have been showing excellent form, and their win against France could serve as a big morale booster.

Given their form, there is a chance that Japan will cause an upset, but that’s a lot to ask of them since they are facing the tournament favorites, who haven’t shown any weaknesses of late. USA’s only loss since August 2018 came against Australia (67-70) in the pre-Olympics friendly.

That translates to a 17-2 record across the last two years. What’s more, the USA trashed Japan 110-64 back at the 2016 Olympics. We expect Japan to show some resilience, but it likely won’t be enough to edge out the USA women’s basketball team.

Prediction: USA -18.5 points 

France vs Nigeria

  • When: Friday, July 30th
  • Time: 4:20 a.m. ET

France were edged out by Japan (70-74) in their Tokyo 2020 Olympics opener and will now seek to get back on track with a win against Nigeria. They should feel hopeful about their chances to grab a W on Friday, knowing that they have already won this affair back in 2018 with 84-62.

Although a lot of time has passed since, one thing has remained the same. The French national basketball team are still viewed as a firm favorite by the bookmakers. Nigeria were priced as +450 outsiders last time out and are now at +275.

Nigeria lost to the USA’s women’s basketball team on Tuesday with 72-81, after they’ve already lost to the same opponent (62-92) in the pre-Olympics friendly. With those defeats, Nigeria are now on a five-match losing streak, which included losses to Belgium (47-79, 60-67) and Spain (52-61).

With the form Nigeria have been showing of late, it’s hard to make a case for them here. They might have had some good moments against the USA last time out, but it seems highly unlikely that they’ll manage to break their dry streak on Friday or even come close to it.

Prediction: France -7.5 

China vs Australia

  • When: Friday, July 30th
  • Time: 8 a.m. ET

Australia enters this match as a heavy betting favorite (-238), which makes a lot of sense. Although China made a strong start to their Tokyo 2020 Olympics campaign with a 97-55 victory against Puerto Rico, it would be a lot to ask from them to see the same success against the Aussies.

With their commanding victory against Puerto Rico, China are now on a four-game winning streak, which includes wins against Great Britain (86-76), Spain (64-62), and South Korea (100-60). Outside of their upset win against Spain (where China were priced as +650 underdogs), they have not produced anything worth celebrating, considering they were expected to dominate all of the remaining three bouts.

This is a must-win match for the Australian team, who need to bounce back following their loss against Belgium (70-85) in the tournament opener. Trust the current no.2 on the FIBA Rankings to deliver and get back on track on Friday!

Prediction: Australia -5.5 points
